Custom validation error message upon hidden field.

  1. Hello,

    I have this form...

    Click here to see screenshot

    This simply consists of...

    1. 1. Radio Buttons
      (6 choices)
    2. Single Line Text
      (hidden by a class) + automatically detects the IP as a default value + does not allow duplicates

    Now is it possible to change the main error validation message using the functions.php?

    See how my form below reacts when submitted...

    Click here to see screenshot

    The form on the RIGHT - is when no radio button is selected, which is to be expected.

    The form on the LEFT - is when a radio button is selected, but entry has already entered from the same IP. Is there anyway I can change the main error validation message to say something like "Sorry you can only enter once"

    Thanks

    Here is a great tutorial about limiting form submission by IP for a time limit that might help you with what you want:
